It must suck to be just like the people you accuse. Your agenda has nothing to do with equal rights, it's simply a pro-gay agenda. That's fine. I'm a Christian. Are you a homosexual? If you are, that's cool. Just because I don't agree with your lifestyle doesn't mean I can't show respect to you.
Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.

I'm straight but my brother is gay.

When you eat shrimp you ignore the bible. When you don't kill a woman for not being a virgin on her wedding night you ignore the bible. When you then cherry pick a verse on gays you do it for some other reason than devotion to that damn book because devotion would have you following it all. What's that other reason?

You continue to demonstrate the only point that I make about this topic. You find it so easy to insult others who are different than you but decry those who do the same towards gay people. That is the very definition of hypocrisy.

Just like being an African-American, being gay shouldn't be something that a person needs to announce. I believe people should be able to make their own decisions as far as sexuality goes, and nowhere in the bible does it command that you play god and judge other people.

My announcement that i'm a heterosexual SHOULD be as relevant as the announcement that Jason Collins made, right?

I'm just tired of this debate, in all honesty, and as a christian, i'm tired of people constantly being judgmental. It isn't our jobs to play god.

No, I'm pointing out why I have a problem with what people do in the name of religion. I don't care who you genuflect to in your home be it jesus, joseph smith or athena. But you won't keep it there. you want society as a whole to comport to your beliefs like yours are more valid than a belief in Poseidon.

It shouldn't be but it is until a player on the Steelers can bring his boyfriend to a team event without raising an eyebrow. We aren't there yet.

Well I disagree with the same things you listed. There are fringe lunatics in every lifestyle and we shouldn't group everyone together based on the actions of a few.

I'm not invited to those parties, but as for me, everyone is welcome in Steeler Nation - both gay and straight. The black and gold is stronger than any differences we may have.

@ complaints about PC culture, "this doesn't offend anyone", I don't force my "agenda", etc.

It's easy to say these things when you're a heterosexual white male. We were born into the largest and most accepted percentile. Now, I'm not saying that we should all feel some form of guilt for that. But it's impossible from where we are to know the struggle of those fighting for their rights and to be accepted. Why is gay athletes coming out a big issue in the media? Because they're allowed to be themselves. Because they're taking steps towards it becoming a non-issue in the future. Right now the culture of professional sports is, unfortunately, saddled with Chris Culliver's and Mike Wallace's. And as long as that intolerance exists, fear will remain.

This whole thing should be a non-story.

If Holmes came out as fruity, would anyone wanna send Lombardi 6 back? I don't think so. Who should care?
